Level Up Your Career by Adopting an Entrepreneurial Mindset

An entrepreneur is generally considered to be an innovator, a source of new ideas, processes and/or procedures, and someone who changes how people think. What happens when retail dietitians take these skills internally to their companies? They become intrepreneurs. Becoming an intrepreneur can be the approach you’ve been looking for to level up your career at retail and advance your health and wellbeing programs.

But what is an intrepreneur? RDBA’s Phil Lempert and Annette Maggi sat down with Damian Salas and John H. Wilson from Drexel University during a recent webcast to answer this question. According to Wilson, “if entrepreneurship is running a marathon, intrepreneurship is like running a marathon with a rope tied around you dragging a grand piano behind you.” Intrepreneurs act like entrepreneurs within their company, working within the structures and culture of your organization to create new opportunities for growth and change how people think.

The full webcast, titled A New Year-A New Focus on Exploring Intrapreneurship for Retail Dietitians is available here. It’s one you won’t want to miss given its potential career and program impact.

More to Come: February Workshop Scheduled

Whether you’re employed fulltime by your retailer or consult, you’ll find enhanced career and H&W program advancement by adopting an entrepreneurial mindset in your role. To help you gain the full benefits of positioning yourself as an intrepreneur, RDBA is offering a three-part educational workshop specifically designed for retail dietitians where you’ll learn how to implement and manage changes within your organization and bring your ideas to market from start to finish. Experts from the Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship at Drexel University, with experience as entrepreneurs, business leaders, and educators, will lead a discussion of the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile (EMP) assessment, help you gain an understanding of intrapreneurship, and position you to identify and establish new revenue streams and innovative practices that increase efficiency. Content will be presented through interactive exercises and breakout discussions across three sessions.

This program is exclusively for retail dietitians, who can attend free-of-charge. The program is scheduled for February 8th, 15th, and 22nd from 3:00-4:30 EST. Continuing education credits will be available for dietetic professionals. Registration information will be available in early November.
